‘Maureen,’ 70s, retired teacher
Depressed over death of her husband of 48 years
“Why did I let him die?”
“How could he do this to me?”
Feeling life was over and she’d spend the rest of her days miserable, alone – but with full use of her walk-in closet.
Helped her grieve, her move forward (without guilt).
Helped her see control issues = “Let him die,” as if it were up to her.
Helped her give new relationship a chance =
Now remarried and gladly sharing walk-in closet.
Want help moving through grief? Need ‘permission’ to enjoy life?
